Leverage the investment that you have made in your commissioned photography and stock images by eliminating fragmented storage - Use CPM to provide one central point to store, search, collaborate and retrieve your images. The CPM solution is easy and intuitive to use to allow fast deployment with limited training.

1. Centralise Storage – Replace fragmented storage on CDs, DVDs external drives and server shares

Avoid searching bookcases of CDs by storing your images in one central location allowing them to be found quickly when it counts. Use the Media Manager to efficiently upload, import, keyword and caption new images and organize them into relevant categories:
  • Eliminate CDs, USB sticks and over-sized email attachments completely
  • Bulk upload images via the web-based FTP interface
  • Batch Import
  • Auto generate thumbnails and downloadable versions - i.e. small sample positional sized images as well as web and print quality files
    NOTE: If the uploaded file does not meet the specifications of the web and print sized download, then only the sample and original file will be available
  • Import IPTC data into the image gallery so it can be searched
  • Confirm the release status of images - i.e. model and property
  • Add a range of attributes to your images - i.e. orientation, black & white, etc
  • Create categories
  • Create one-off event galleries
  • Allow your graphics team to focus on developing material rather than resize, re-formating and distributing images
